Our History

1926

A Business Is Born

In 1926, the trading name of “Gill & Co” was registered by Lynnwood Lawrence Gill and one of Queensland’s most respected family businesses was born.

1935

Purchased A Sawmill

The business prospered and was sufficiently profitable to enable the purchase of a sawmill at Roseberry, just north of Kyogle in Northern NSW. This took place in about 1935. The war years were spent in production of timbers for the various Government Departments permitted by law to buy it, no sales being made to private individuals.

1950

Business Expansion

The sawmill was sold to Hancock and Gore Ltd in about 1950, the funds generated being used in expansion of the merchant side of business. The site of the previous yard at 1421 Ipswich Road, Rocklea, was purchased between 1950 and 1952, and was an area of nearly 3 acres. However, much of the land was low lying and subject to flooding.

1950

John Joins The Business

Lynnwood’s son, John, joined the business in about 1950.

1960

Cleveland Yard Is Built

In 1960, another yard was established at Cleveland, on the corner of Princess and Bloomfield Streets, with an area of approximately 3.5 acres, and with a building 300 feet long and 100 feet wide, enabling most of the stock to be left under cover. This was also an instant success, as it was the only timber yard for 10-15 miles.

1967

Yard Completed

Accordingly over the next 15 years as money was available, filling was purchased, raising the land to an acceptable level. Around 1967, part of the land was resumed by the Main Roads Department of Queensland for the Ipswich Road Overpass, and at that time the filling and fencing of the yard was completed. The establishment of the yard enabled the business to further expand.

1992

David Joins The Company

John has now passed his legacy on to his son David, who joined in 1992 and today is the Managing Director of the company.

2021

After more than 96 years, Lynnwood Gill’s founding principal of ‘specialist advice at a competitive price’ still lives on today with David, his wife Rebecca and their team of experienced staff at Gill & Co Timber.
